I have a In-Home daycare question that i would like some suggestions with, I have one little boy~2 1/2~ his grandmother picks him up every afternoon and the minute she walks in the door he starts talking very rude to her and running around. I have put him in time out while she is here talked to him all day about being nice to her

Can I ask why it bothers you?

HI there!

I sort of agree with the other reply. If the boy is good for you and not being a problem for you than leave it up to her to deal with. I've had a few kids act up when their parents come in (actually having a 23 month old doing it now) and I just have her get all ready to go so when mom comes in she's ready. Last week I actually carried her to the car so I didn't have to watch the mom and daughter "dance" around each other.

Just my opinion.

Thanks~I think it bothers me because he hits her, runs around my house knocking stuff over and is just distrubtive.He is a sweetheart for me just a "little" mischevious but listens well and plays good. I now have him ready to leave and kinda ignore him when she comes in. I have watched them out the front window and she has to chase him around and he knocks stuff over in the yard! He screams if I try to put him in the car because he wants her to do it, It usually takes her about 15 minutes to get in the car, sometimes I will have to leave I will just get in my car and leave her, I have tryed to help but it is just frustrating me so i will leave it to her to work it out.

That would get old. If gma is pretty consistent with what time she comes I would have him all suited up (coat, shoes, etc) and have him waiting. When she gets there keep things brief with her (but nice) and let her take him home.
